“Quick Food Stop”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

We grabbed a bite here before going snorkeling. The food was delicious and the place has outdoor tables to eat. Everyone in our party got the fish burger (fried fish patty) or fish and chips. The fish was really tasty and the fries were cooked just right.
It was the perfect place to eat then walk across the road and go snorkel. Service was friendly. Have cash, they accept credit cards but charge a little extra percentage if you use one.

“Massive Hamburgers!”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

Had a humungus old skool hamburger here, You get real burgers like the ones you used to get before the fast food chains took over the world. Thumbs up for a decent nosh up of collosal burgers and chips. You wont go hungry.

“Nice takeaway to grab a quick bite”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

We grabbed takaway lunch and dinner from Kaena's, the fish and chips were delightful as was the french fires and they give you plenty, you can share a single order of fries between two or three people, the canola oil (I asked) that is used for deep-frying tasted clean and fresh, no tarter sauce available but really not missed as the fish (wahoo?) was nice and tasty on its own.
Also ordered the Rarotonga Burger one evening, it was very good with some pineapple and mayonnaise, a little messy so grab some napkins.
Typical canned soda/water offerings were slightly less expensive than many other similar type restaurants on the island, overall a good value and nice food.

“Good food and plenty of it.”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

We had a nice dinner there but it is part of a takeway which spoilt it a bit. A very handy location to the Resort we were staying at with very good food and friendly service

“Great takeaways terrible restaurant”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

We grabbed some great and really good value (inexpensive) takeaways here one night - great for all the family. But don't be tempted to sit down and eat here. The prices quadrupled and the inhouse food was terrible - the fish platter was all frozen stuff that was cooked badly and cost us the same as eating in a good downtown Auckland restaurant. And the roof leaked. Really, really disappointing.
